Asset Management

How can agencies on limited budgets maximize their capital infrastructure assets for long-term value? Harris & Associates enables deliberate, informed planning to help prioritize your system’s maintenance and upgrades.


History shows that a “worst first” approach to maintenance and repairs isn’t always the optimal asset management strategy. Whether you’re a city looking to improve your Pavement Condition Index, a water utility seeking guidance on your long-term capital improvement plan, or trying to understand how climate change will affect your assets longer term, you need clear insights to guide your investment priorities. Harris & Associates helps agencies make data-driven decisions about their infrastructure and take a “best value first” approach to managing critical assets.

Translating Data into Action

Our expert team bridges the gap between collecting and leveraging data to drive results. We partner with key decision makers to analyze infrastructure assets and offer guidance to navigate the political dynamics involved, including Board approvals for capital investments that become community improvements.

Covering Every Angle

Improving infrastructure performance and resilience, increasing sustainability, reducing overall costs—our holistic approach to asset management delivers comprehensive benefits. We deliver thorough asset inventories (tracking age, condition, and criticality) along with proactive operation and maintenance recommendations. We also support long-range financial planning with replacement options based on cost-benefit analyses.
